Mistakes

We all commit mistakes. But what if few of the industry giants commit front end mistakes and overlook them?

Well, in this post I am going to cover few UI related issues by tech companies like Apple and Google. 

Apple:
visit extensions.apple.com and check out padding issue with search box.

This issue exists only on webkit based browsers.


 

Google:
Alright, so here we go with google. I had to create new email id for my sister and I came across a beautiful welcome screen.
How perfect is this !

Perfect welcome screen. Nice job !

Now lets look carefully this beautiful job done by gmail designer(s).

well, this isn’t first time I am observing such mistakes. Lets drill gmail’s code further and find some interesting issues.

Steps:

  1. Sign in to your gmail account.
  2. Select an unread mail and one read mail.
    gmail_issue_1
  3. Mark both of them unread.
  4. See anything ? No ?  open console and inspect subject line of mail which was already unread in step 2.

    Yes, its a mistake. If you are a mozilla user then you can SEE everything unlike webkit users.
  5. Select one more read mail with these unread mails and make them unread again. Do you see B tag  wrapped inside 2 B tags?

So next time if someone tries to correct you, listen them.
